Kristen Bell – HOL Premiere in Zuhair Murad

Reeeeeed Carpet Fashion is back for the 2012 round and I’m very excited to share with you, my first favorite appearance of the new year, made by the lovely miss Bell. On January 4, Kristen attended the premiere of her new TV series, House Of Lies, in Los Angeles. The Showtime production is set to air its first episode on Sunday, January 8 and I cannot wait for that to happen.

Kristen-Bell---Zuhair-Murad-Fall-2011

For this event, Kristen opted for a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 smokey silver, hand-beaded mini dress with long sleeves, sleeves that made a lot of people think “ice-skater”, however I think it is still a pretty beautiful dress in all of its details.

A pair of Christian Louboutin Boulima d’Orsay sandals and long loose waves completed the fresh look.

Rihanna – Miami Look In Alexander Wang

On New Year’s Eve, Rihanna was spotted leaving her hotel in Miami, Florida where she was enjoying a well deserved vacation for the Holidays. She caught my eyes with her urban look, rocking a pair of Alexander Wang colour-block shorts with athletic undertones, from the Resort 2012 collection.

She completed the sporty feel of the look with a white sleeveless shirt but opted to wear the matching Alexander Wang Chloe colour-block sandals, as she was definitely not going for a run.

Beauty wise, Rihanna chose a red lip color , red nails and a casual up-do perfectly suited for a sunny vacation.

2012 Must-Have – The Little Red Dress

It’s a brand new year, a fresh start, we already feel different and start planning for 2012, wishing to make some changes in our lives and maybe even our wardrobes (trends change and so do we). If you already started working on the “Essential Items for 2012 List” or the otherwise called “I Wish A Lot Of New Stuff This Year” I suggest you make some space on your list and in your closet, for one of the 2012’s must-haves : The Little Red Dress.

I’m not saying it will be replacing The Little Black Dress forever, but this year it could be an inspired choice for so many different events, saving us time and helping us look effortless chic.

Amongst the designers that introduced the little red dress for 2012 were : Elie Saab, Donna Karan, DKNY, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Naeem Khan and Carolina Herrera.

Those dresses are beautiful indeed but I don’t know, actually I do know, I’ll never have the chance to wear them outside my imagination that is. Luckily, we have other options to shine as bright as the stars do, but wearing ASOS, Romwe and Topshop as they are some of the most affordable and fashionable brands. My top 4 red ASOS picks are :

ASOS 02

ASOS 03

ASOS 04

Not bad at all, right ? Let’s embrace this trend and look beautiful all throughout 2012, it’s a special year, I’m telling you. XO

Talking about her upcoming movie The Vow (in which she plays an amnesiac whose husband, played by Channing Tatum, tries to woo her back), love on set and her normal Toronto life, Rachel doesn’t get lovelier than that.

You can check her entire interview (it’s worth your time) on the official Glamour page, here :).

And if you still haven’t seen the trailer for The Vow but you’re a sucker for romance (I am one of those, yes), I hope you enjoy it :

More Pastels Please …

Major Fashion Crush right at the beginning of 2012, ’cause how else could I start the new year ? When I first saw these pictures, my mind instantly jumped ahead, right in the middle of spring days, with a warm sun caressing me, trees full of candy, a breath of fresh air … stop. reload. and… a variety of pastels just waiting to be mixed, from jeans, to hi-tops and bags. Sweet, sweet trend.

Pastels---Love

Of course, ASOS was inspired enough to follow this trend and deliver some pretty amazing items, like the ones pictured above, also see below :

I Think I'm In Love

Ready For Spring

I Can Sense The Lavander

2011 is already gone (can you believe how fast that happened ?) so today I wanna wish you all a very Happy New Year, may all your dreams for 2012 come true, no matter how big or small, and even if January feels like a new beginning always remember … the best is yet to come !

Happy New Year

I can’t wait to get “back in business” starting tomorrow ! XO
